Tho veteran puglllstlo trainer and Bccond,

ft looms Corbett was pouted at 4 to 6.
There was n rush of if5 to 10 ventures, nnd
Corbett was rubbed lo 7 to 10. This

Almost everybody In this city yostcrday talked
fight. Thoso wlio did not were not considered
sporty. Tho interest In the big contest at Corson
Is more pronounced than It was In tho battle be
tween Corbett and Sullivan, in that affair tho
majority of sports contended (hat Corbett did
not have a chance, whllo In tho mill of to-day
both boxers nro considered to bo evenly matched.
As already forcshadowod In The Bun, tho
betting yesterday afternoon roso from 8 to 10 on
Fltz to l to 10. In many Instances oven money
was offered. Shrewd sporta still maintain thnt
It will bo "even up nnd tnko your pick" before
the men enter tho ring. Both sides yesterday
complained thnt there was a dearth of rash
about, but they confosacd that In tho end they
were ablo to land sevoral wagers. Outside of
money wagers many persons bnvo agreed to buy
their friends casos of wine nnd now hats If tholr
favorite Is put to sleep. Teddy Foley. Sam
Fltr.oatrick, and George G. Smith expect to open
a smnll-slzod hat store If Corbott wins.
The Lambs Club, In West Thirty-first strcot,
where most nil the prominent actors gathor,
presented a lively nppenranco yesterday. Oilers
to wager on Corbott were snnpped at with avidi
ty and no Fitzslmmmis mnn was allowed to es
enpo If ho did not demand any oxnrbltuntoiUls.
Do WoU Hoppor, Hob Milliard, and Maurice liar
rymoroled tho Corliett contingent. At Hilly
Brady's headquarters a number of wagers wcro
made on Corbett. Ed Kearney, Jr., was around
town tn lug to get down about 2.000 on " l'oin-padoui-
Jim "at 10 to 8, but claims ho did not
succeed. Kearney nlso received a dispatch from
Arthur Moore, from Carson, stntlng that Corbett
Is In tho ilncst posalblo condition nnd cannot seo
how he can lose. Monro also says that n number
of big wagers have liecn mado at Carson on the
Cnllforninn. At tho Astor Houso there was
plenty of Corbott monoy in sight nt 100 to 00,
but It practically wont ubegging. Only one
wnger was mado at these figures.
Eddie Tolcott could not find many takers for
his wad on Corbett, although ho was ready to
place It ut 10 to 8. Fred Ituppert, who has al
ready about $2,000 down on Fitz. Invested
ljH.700 more yesterday on Hob. Ho willingly
took 10 to 8. Frank liosworth, Flttslnimons's
former sparring partner, ncciptod tbo small
end of over $000 on Fitz, and iinnounced that
ho has $200 inoro tn wagor. Frank McKco,
partner of Charley Hoyt, tho playwright, laid
81,000 to $800 on Corbett with a Boston sport.
Jack Smith also received it commission of $300
on Fitz, and did not hnvo to wait very long to
place It. He gladly accepted even monoy.
Ocorgo G. Smith, the Third avenue sport, was
accommodated with a wager of $300 to $400 on
Jim, and said that ho would have about $2,000
more to speculate at this jirlco this morning.
Frank Mason, Into on Monday night, agreed to
act as stakeholder for a wager of $500 even on
Fltz. Teddy Foley nlso managed to llnd a cus
tomer for tho rcmulndcr of his commission of
$2,000 on Corliett, Ho consented to take $1,500
against this sum with a. Wcstorn sport.
Tim McGrath, ono of tho men who trained
Tom Sharkey for his battle with Corbett, believes
that tho ox-champion has an Iron-clad cinch, and
gave $.100 to $175 yesterday, ne also wagered
100 even with Tom O'Hourko that Dal Haw
kins would dofoat Martin Flaherty. Solly Smith
nlso hns a wager down on Hawkins with
O'Hourko. Smith defeated Hawkins a fow yonrs
ago and says ho will whip Flaherty quickly.
" Mysterious" Billy Smith's admirers are not In
clined to back him, owing to tho fact that they
lieliovo bo will lose his head and commit n foul.
J. Duko Murray, buslnoss manager of the Grand
Opera Houso, yesterday accepted an oven-money
wager of $200 on Fitz.
Acting on a telegram from Jimmy Wakoly, P.
Cllggett went down tho lino offering $1,000 to
$800 on Corbott. Cllggett claims that he had
no troublo in finding a taker for the amount.
Charles II. White got two wooers to tho extent
of $080on Fltz. Whllo says ho mode no kick
w hen tho Corbet t people olfered him even monoy.
Tho sensational tight between Con Doyle of
Chicago and Jack Held of Ireland at the Anieri
canSportlngClub on Monday night made Beveral
Fltzsimmons supporters give rout to their feel
ings yesterday, ono of them said:
"Wouldn't it lie funny If the big fight turned
out the same way I Hero is Doyle, like Fitz
Blmmons, a lerritlo hitter and able to receivo
punishment, while Itcid, liko Corbott, is u
clever boxer and a hard Jabber. Sup
pose Jim cuts Bob all up In tho llrst
ton rounds and tho latter receives his
gruel with tho idea of landing a heavy
fiunch on tho point of tho Jaw. Wouldn t
hat bo a repetition of thlsafTair to-night I Well,
that's what wo are banking on. Fltz, If ho can
land, will score a knock-nut, whether ho Is badly
punished or not. Just as Doyle has done."
Scroral Corbett enthusiasts ridiculed thlB ar
gument by declaring the Callforninn would seo
to It that no knock-out blow reached his jaw,
even If ho had to stay lntho ring for twenty-four
hours. "Ho will simply tiro Fltz out, they
said, " and will then rut him to pieces."

Tbn Xlcams-ua Cannl Cuba Abrogation or the
Clajton-llulwer Treaty,
"Washington, March 10. There Is every Indi
cation of n much freer interchange of views and
of confidences between the State Department
and tho Committee on Foreign Itelations of tho
Senate since tho advent of the new Administra
tion. The visit of Secretary Sherman to the Capitol
this afternoon was entirely unexpected, and tho
llrst that was known of his visit was when, niter
his lunch, a messenger Informed Chairman
Davis that Mr. Sherman was at tho commlttco
room. An impromptu meeting was called, and
for an hour the commlttco and tho new Secre
tary of Stato conferred about our relations with
other powers.
There was considerable discussion relative to
the construction of the Nicaragua Canal. Mr.
Sherman is favorablo to tbo1 project, but has
taken thoground In his speeches In thoScnnto
that tho canal should bo constructed through
tho Instrumentality of the United States alono,
rnthor than through the agency of a prlvnto
corporation aided and assistcil by this Govern
ment in tbo mntter of bonds.
Only n few days before tho expiration of tho
Fifty-fourth Congress, immediately following
the protest of Minister Rodriguez or the Greater
Ilepubliu of Central America, Mr. Sherman re
ferred to tho Frellnghuyson-Znvala treaty sent
to tho Scnoto on Dec. 10, 18S4, by President
Arthur, and withdrawn by President Cleveland
at the lnstnnco of Socretury Bayard within ten
duvs after bis accession tn oflleo in Mnrch, 1885.
Ily this treaty Nicaragua offered to give to the
United States absolute control of her territory
as far as tho construction of this cannl was con
cerned. Mr. Shorman In his speech said ho
hoped this treaty could be revived and as much
us Bald that when ho should bo Socretary of
State this question would lie investigated.
It 1b understood bo told thu committee to-day
he had hopes of securing another concession
from Nicaragua, and tho Initial steps would
Bonn bo taken with that end in view. It Is not
bcllovcd by tlio committee, nnd Mr. Shorman
does not, it Is said, dispute tho proposition,
that tho Claytnn-Bulwer treaty will operate
to prevent tho negotiation of a treaty
with tho Greater Republic or Nicaragua. Mr.
Morgan, howover, proposes to get rid of this ob
jectionable convention if possible, nnd Inter In
the afternoon, after tho conference with Mr,
Sherman, olfered his joint resolution declaring
tho Clayton-Bulwer treaty to bo abrogated.
While Mr. Sherman was present tho Cuban
situation was touched iion. It wus stated that
the Senato and tho country would lie put In pos
session of all tho fucta concerning tho troubles In
Cuba, nnd thut tho policy of suppressing tho
ncu'B would no longer prevail.
As a result of Ibis conference It Is said that
several resolutions may soon bo Introduced ask
ing for Information and correspondence which
hus beon suppressed, und which, tho committee
has assurances, will bo promptly transmitted to
tho Senuto and tho country.

"Whon I was In Congress beforo." said Sir.

Is muili larger than the population of other
Territories admitted since 1HO0. and tho only

"Washington, March 10. This waa another
dayof activity at tlio Kxccutlva Mansion. Tho
rough-and-tumble, catch-as-catch-cnn scramble
for Federal patronago was repeated for tho tenth
time beforo tlio doors of tho Whlto Houso wore
fairly opened. Senators ami Representatives,
many of them bringing friends and constituents,
entered and asked to seo the President. Tho
usual contingent of chronlo oflleo seekers found
its way Into tho mansion beforo 11, the hour sot
for the meeting of tho Cabinet.
Tho fact that this was Cabinet day had Utile
effect In keeping tho crowd In check. Between
10 and 11 tho President saw more men, per
haps, than during tho samo hours on any other
day since ho was Inaugurated. Only one branch
of Congress was In session, nnd, as n conse
quence, n good portion of the members of tho
House colled, eomo to "pay their respects,"
others to oak for oflleo. President McIClnloy's
nnnounccinent, mado last wcok, that only Am
bassadors, Ministers, and assistant secretaries
in tho departments would bo appolntod Imme
diately haB not lessened ono whit tho
rush for oflleo. The faithful know that the
oftlccsaro to bo filled, and It scorns to bo their
determination not to lcavo tho ground until
something dcflnlto Is done.
Illchard P. Bland, whom tho Missouri nnd
Arkansas delegations .In Chicago wanted to
nomlnnto for tho Presidency, was a caller at
tho Presidential oflleo this morning. His visit
was n social one. Ho camo early, soon after
sun-up, nnd remained but n fow moments.
Many Important events hnvo transpired slnco
ho called nt tho Executive Mansion. Ho was
out of Congress two years, having been sent to
tho rear on a Republican tidal wave, but ho
comes back ns cnthuslastio a champion of frco
silver ns before.
Another plcturesquo character that has lwcn
haunting tho Whlto Houso for tho last ten days
again appeared this morning. Ex-ltcprcscntn-tlvo
Plcklcr Is tbo man. Ho wanted to be Com
missioner of Pensions, but President McKInloy
objected, and, It Is understood, has tendered tho

Ho camo with Senator Kyle, who spoke a good
word In his behalf. Mr. Plcklcr left tho White

Tall Senator Piatt of Connecticut camo early
In tho day und was among tho llrst to seo tho
President. There nro many nlco Foderal ofliccs
In thu Nutmog Stato which Mr. 1'latt would like
for his friends, and his visit to-day was to speak
for three or four good olllces before they should
bo parcelled out by tbo other Senator from Con

to tho President," Senator 1'latt may expect
something by way of favor, for that samo Porter
once wns Senator Piatt's private secretary,
Representative Bclden of Syracuse, who comes
back to Congress after an abseuco of two years,
was also in tbo list of callers. He camo over
from tho Arlington, where bo breakfasted with
John Milholland, and bo wanted to seo tho
President in the Interest of J. II. Drake, u can
didate for Consul at Chemnitz, Germany. Mr.
Drake formerly lived In South Dakota, but is
now a resident of Now York, and Senator Kylo
and Major Picklor vouched for him as a man of
sterling integrity, great personal worth, and de
serving of some recognition at tho hands of tho
Chlof Executive.
lloios Penrose, Pennsylvania's junior Senator,
headed a delegation of llftecn or twenty Repub
licans who had business with the President,
Representatives Arnold, Connell, Butler, Urum,
Bobbins, Culp, and Hicks were some of tho men
with Mr. Penrose. Each man had somo sort of an
nxc to grind, but the main purposo in tho delcga
tlon's coming was to got acquainted with tho
President. Many of tho Representatives nro
new to Washington, and had never met tho Ex
ecutive before.
Representative Arnold recommended J. Irvino
Shaw for Consul to Bordeaux, France. Hcn
ntorPenroso bucked the request. Tho Presi
dent talked with each member of tho delegation
separately, and all came away much pleased
with their trip. Ml tie, chubby SonatorSpooner
of Wisconsin, with his long hair nicely combed,
his face smoothly shaved, and his shoos polished,
entered tho Whlto Houso with a delegation from
tbo Badger State. Tbeycamoto Insist on the
appointment of a mnn In their Stato to un im

passod with tho President. Henry C. Puyno, tho
disappointed National Committeeman, called
again to-day. Representative Houtelle of Maino
entered alone at just about tho tlmu for the
Cabinet to moet, und passed a minute or
so with President Mckinley. Mr. Boutcllo
is Interested in having W. W. TltomtiB of Malno
sent back to Sweden as Minister. Mr. Thomas
was In Sweden under Lincoln, Arthur, and Har
rison. He Is strongly backed, having the in
dorsement of tho two Maine Senators and tho
entire Houso delegation, including Speaker
Heed, who was his schoolmate raid is his close
personal friend. Besides those indorsements.
Cant. Thomas has the nnmes of twenty-live ite
pnlilk'Uii Representatives who havoasked for his

l'rusident McKlnloy's personul friend, Harri
son Gray Otis of Iios Angeles, Cal., who. It is
thought, has been selected for Assistant Secre
tary of War, will not get this place if tho Inter
national Typographical Union can prevent it.
Within tho last few days a hornet s nest hns
been stirred up by tho announcement that Mr.
Otis is slated for the place. Awny out in his
California homo Col. Otis runs adully nowspupcr,
Wta Lou Angeles 'J'imm. On this newspaper, it
uppcars. he employs non-union printers. To-day
Representative Jesso Overstrcet of Indlannpolis
called on the President and lodged a formal com
plaint, mado by tho International Typographical
Union, against the appointment of Col, Otis.
The President listened attentively to the com
plaint, but mndo no comment. Mr. Oicrstreet
assured tho President that more complaint
from tho same sourco would be made soon.
"Cousin" Osborne, who is to bo Consul-Gen-era!
in London, saw tho President to-dny. Repre
sentatives Northway of Ohio and Livingston of
Georgia were among tho afternoon callers.
Secretary of War Alger came In during tho
afternoon, and was shoivn to tbo Cabinet room,
where the President joined him a few moments
later, Ex-Roprcscntntivo Wilson of Ohio wus n

Connecticut. Stanley Brown, who was secre
tary to President Gurllold during his term of

Ex-Sennlor Wurnor Miller was with Presi

insists that ho is out of politics, for tbo time
lieing nt loast, and says that his visit to tho
Whllo Houso had no poiltlcul significance Mr.
Miller bus visited tho Prestdont three times in
as many days, and tho gossips nro wont to seo
something political In his visits. He is, how
ever, more interested In having the Nicaragua
Canal built than ho Is in securing appointments
for faithful constituents.
Half a dozeu local photographers were at the
White Houso whon tho Cabinet met, all wanting
to take a picture of the members. Two or throe
were successful, but the others had to wait un
til somo other tlmo to gratify their desire.' The
little luoldent of yostcrduy, when the bronze fuco
of thu immortal Lincoln was scorched, has
served to arouse the ire of Secretary Porter, and
ho Is not well dlsjiosed toward those who come to

J7XPZAXXIXO THE TARIFF HILZ.
Itepnbllrane Answer Drmocrntlo Questions In
Committee.
"Washington, March 10. Tho now tariff bill
was considered to-dny by tho Ways and Means
Committee. Tho morning session lasted threo
hours.
Mr. Russell of Connecticut, It appears, was
largely responsible for the woollen schedule,
which was explained by him. Tho changes in the
ngrlcultural schodulo were Interpreted by Mr.
Ilolllver of Iown. Tho Iron, steel, and glassware
schedules wero explained by Mr. Dalzoll of
Pennsylvania; thoso in sugar by Mr. Payno of
Now York, and those In wood by Mr, Tawney of
Minnesota,
Mr. Dolllvor stated In rcforenco to tho agri
cultural Bchcdulo that tho changes wcro moro In
form than substanco. Tho duty on animals was
less than tho McKInloy rate. As far as oranges
wero concerned, tho duty was assessed by tho
pound instead of by tho hulk, in order to socuro
a moro cquitablo adjustment In tho collection of
tho duty. Tho Increased rate on broken rieo
was mado to prevent evasion of the present law.
Cblccory root, hitherto free, was now dutiable at
threo cents a pound. Inasmuch as an Industry
hnd been rocontly established In tho West to
prepare it as a substituto for coITeo.
Mr. Payno was asked as to tho amount of rov
cnuo tho sugar tchedulo would produce Ho
could not say, but thought the lncreaso would
bo about $111,000,000. Mr. Robinson of Louisi
ana estimated the rcvenuo from sugar to bo
$50,000,000 per annum.
It mm decided at tbo afternoon meeting of tho
commlttco that an adjournment should lie taken
from this ovening until 10 o'clock Thursday
morning. The purpose of this was to penult
tho IJeniocratio members to study tbo bill nnd
to prepare thu amendments which titer propose
otfcrlng when tho commlttco reassembles. Tho
minority will meet to-morrow afternoon at tho
Capitol and decido upon tho lino of policy to bo
pursued by them in committee nnd in the House.
It 1b still undecided whether tho bill shall bo
reported on Thursday, but tho Democratic
members believe this to bo the intention of the
majority. Tho understanding is that if tlio bill
bo reported on Thursday It will bo taken up at
onco for consideration without waiting for tho
Democratic minority report. Somo of tho lto-
Subllcan mcmlicrs think two weeks should suf
co tor debuting the measure In tho House.
The liquor schedule was tho first to bo con
sidered this afternoon. Mr. Kvans of Kentucky
explained Its provisions. He showed how the
duty on brandy had been increased from $1.80
to S'J.OO n gallon, mid pointed to advantages tho
winu producers of Franco would gain if that
Government should give this country a cor
responding advantage on our exports.
Mr. Hussollof Connecticut was questioned as
to tbo paragraphs constituting the cotton sched
ule. Ho snld that this schedule did not differ
materially from tho present law except that
speclilc rates had been substituted for ad va
lorem ones. Hose, underwear, combination
suits, corset covers, &c, wore i!5 per cent. Iielow
tbo McKlnley rnte. In uo case, he maintains,
wero thu rates in tho now bill so excessive as In
tho luw of 18110.
Tlio schedule relating to flax and Juto was dis
cussed by paragraphs and tho inquiries of the
Democrats woroanswerod by Mr. Payne of New
York. This schedule, ho snid, contained practi
cally tho McKlnley rates. In reply to a query
why cotton bagging, now on the frco list, had
been restored to tbo dutiablo list nt h a cent u
square yurd and 15 per cent, ad valorem, ho
suited that, tho additional revenue was needed,
and that tbo duty would not materially affect
tho price of tho product.
Mr. Hopkins of Illinois explained tho provi
sions of the woollen schedule. Mr. Russell spoko
on tho silk and paper schedules. It. was ex
plained that buttons of all kinds were placed In
u paragraph by themselves, nt a rate between
the old nnd tho present law, in order to simplify
the collection of the revenue.

could get, nnd talked long and earnestly. Fed
eral patronago was evidently tho subject of tho
conference, for Mr. Forakor had a paper with
names written on it, nt which Mr. Hanna would
glanco occasionally, bobbing his head in ap

ODD KIND OF KLEPTOMANIA
TECVLIAR CASE 6F MRS. B1MFSOX
OF XEWARK.
She la Accused New of Swindling Several
Women by means of Forced Notes from
friends Asklnr ftor Loans Police Bay This
Is the Third Time She Has Ileen Ho AfTccted.
When tho police of the Fourth Precinct of
Nownrk arrested Mrs. Carrie Simpson, 30 years
old, of 200 Bruco street, on Monday after
noon on tho charge of rwlndllng, n queer form of
kleptomania was brought to light.
Tlio formal chnrgo against Mrs. Simpson wns
that of swindling Mrs, Aiinlo Chain boss of 3441
Bergen street and Mrs. Josophtno Elbrocht of 15
Sayro strcot out of $3 each. Mrs. Simpson was
arralgnod before Justice Eggers yesterday morn
ing and, tn default of $200 ball, was commlttod
to the county Jail to await tho action of tho
Grand Jury.
In the latter part of February a small boy
went to tho houso of Mrs. Chamboss with a note.
The lady answered tho door horsolf, and the
boy, handing her tho note, said:
"Hero's a note a lady asked me to give you,
and sho sold I wns to got an answer."
Mrs. Chambos broko tho seal nnd fonnd that
tho note was from her friend, Mrs. 1iulsa
Payne, who lives at 40 Hay strcot, only a few
blocks from tho Chnmboss rosldeneo. Mrs,
Chnmboss Is fairly familiar with Mrs. Payno's
handwriting and never doubted thnt her friend
had sent tho note.
It stated that a hill had Just been presented to
Mrs. Payno, and sho found thnt sho lacked Just
$3 of enough to mako out tho amount. Would
Mrs. Chamboss bo good enough to lend her that
amount until Mr. Payno camo homo nnd would
she be good enough to send tho money by tho
boarorot tho notol Mrs. Chamboss gavo tbo
monoy to tho boy and ho trotted off.
Night came and Mrs. Payno did not return tho
money, Tho next day and tho next camo nnd
went and still Mrs. Chamboss heard nothing
about the loan. After nearly a week had passod
Mrs. Cbnmlxiss was calling upon horslster-ln-Inw,
Mrs. Klbrccht, ono day, and sho mentioned
tbo fact that Mrs. Payno lmd borrowed tho
monoy, and said that she thought It strango that
sho had heard nothing of thu matter since.
" Well, my dear, voit don't want to Judgo Mrs.
Payno too harshly, said Mrs. Klbrccht. "You
remember you never havo said anything about
tlio :i j ou oorrowod of mo tho other liny.
" I borrowed $3 of you!" exclaimed Mrs.
Chamboss. What do you moan I 1 novcr bor
rowed n cont of you in my life."
Mrs. Elbrocht went to ntnblo drawer nnd got
a noto which sho bunded to Mrs. Chamboss.
Tho noto was almost tlio same in its wording ns
tho one Mrs. Chamboss had received from Mrs.
Payne, only thut It asked for tho loan from Mr.
Elbrccht.
" Whyl" exclaimed Mrs. Chamboss, "I never
wrote that noto. I never saw It beforo. When
did you got It t Who brought It to yout Did
yon send tho money, ns this noto requests 1
While Mrs. Elbrocht was explaining whon sho
received tho note, that a small boy brought it to
her, and that sho certainly did comply with its
request, tho door bell rang nnd who should como
in but Mrs. Payne.
There was n general explanation, and tho
threo women concluded that the thing to do was
to tell their husbands, which they did. In
this way tho swindle was brought to tho
uttentlon of the police. Dotectlvo Jocks,
who was detailed on tho case, found
that a similar attempt had been made
to swindle Mrs. Elbrocht's father and had
failod. In his case n little girl named Trayboldt.
living near Mr. Elbrccht s cigar store, bad
brought him a noto signed with the name of
somo ono Mr. Elbrocht know, asking for a loan of
5. Mr. Elbrecht had refused to comply with
tho request. Tho girl said a woman had given
her the note.
Detootlvo Jocks told the Trayboldt girl if sho
oversaw the woman again to follow nor until
shoonterod a house and then Inform the Urst
policeman sho could And. Little Miss Tray
boldt Is only 12 years old, but she remembered
what the detective had told her.
Last Saturday afternoon she saw tho woman
In Market street, followed her from one plnceto
another, and finally saw her enter the house at
201) Bruce strcot. Then sho told a policeman,
who happenod to bo only a short distance away,
what sho had been told to tell him byDctcctlvo
Jacks.
Tho policeman reported tho matter at tho sta
tion house, and said that tho houso which tbo
woman entered was ocouplod by a shoemakor
named Simpson nnd his wile. Mrs. Simpson was
asked to como to the station houso on Monday
afternoon, and sho camo. Tbo Truyboldt girl
ldenlltlcd her as tho woman who sent the noto
to Mr. Elbrocht.
Henry Smith of 2 Baldwin street, the boy who
carried tbo noto to Mrs. Chamboss, could not
Identity Mrs. Simpson as tho woman who hod
sent htm to Mrs. Chamboss's house.
After thut, Mrs. Simpson wns formally arrest
ed. Site flatly dcnlod sending any of the notes,
or receiving any of tho money, Or even having
seen the Trayboldt girl beforo in life.
When sho was arralgnod yesterday morning
she asked that her futher.u well-to-do German
be Bent for to furnish ball for her. The futbor
positively refused to do anything for his daugh
ter, and, in consequence, she wns sent to Jail.
Tho police of tlio Fourth precinct say that Mrs.
Simpson has a peculiar history. According to
their story, she was murried nliout four years
ngo to a very estimable man, who has always
provided her with a comfortablo home. Nothing
wns ever beard against her until shortly beforo
tho birth of her first child, which is now about
two years old.
Then Mrs. Elbrecht missed avnluablo diamond
ring and diamond broastpin. They woro traced
to Mrs. Simpson, und Mr. Simpson returned tho
ring when ho found out to whom it belonged.
Mrs. Simpson was arrested for the thett, tried,
and convicted, but, on lng to tho fact that sho
was about to become a mother und owing to the
good mime sho had always borne theretofore,
sentence woh suspended.
Nothing moro unfavorablo was heard of Mrs.
Simpson until shortly beforo the birth of her
second child, which is now about a year old.
Then the widow of Mrs. Simpson's brother, so
tho police say, missed, ono day, a bunk book,
wlilcn showed a comfortablo balance to her
credit in a savings bunk.
Inquiry at the bank brought out the fact that
a woman hnd presented the book, with a small
deposit, somo days beforo, and shortly after
ward had drawn out tbo entire amount there
standing to tho Widow Simpson's credit,
Tho police sny that tbo thett of tho bankbook
nnd tho monoy was traced to Mrs. Simpson,
but tho mutter was settled within the family
instcud of in court. Mrs. Simpson Is now In a
dcllcato condition, and her frlcuds do not be
lieve she Is responsible for her acts.
They believe thnt at such times she isselzod
w 1th a manlu for stealing which she cannot con
trol. Her husband Is nearly prostrated by his
wifo's latest experience in alleged crime.

"en. Wado Hampton Is one of the most be
loved sons of the South. His ro:ord in the
late civil war endeared him to his friends and
won tho admiration of Tils fool. Hn wns ono
of tho bravest and most successful cavalry offi

correspondence with Gen. Robert E. Leo dur
ing that eventful period shows that ha bud tho
confidence and tho closo friendship of tho com

At tho closo of tho war Ucn, Hampton wns
called from retirement nnd elected Govornor of
the Palmetto State during tho most trying days
of reconstruction. His tdtnlnlttratlon won
for him n plnce In tho United States Sennto

Tillman's lieutenants. After leaving tho Sen

his warm personal friend and ndmlror. An
additional bond of svrapatbr between Mr. Cleve

The Senator's Young Son to no Secretary of
Our Bmhasay tn Itome.
Washinoton. March 10. Prelsdent Mc
Klnley will send to the Senate soon a second
budget of diplomatic appointments, and in
the list there will be one nomination that will
bo received with surprise nnd severe criticism.
Daring their recent visits to the White House
several Senators have learned thnt the ap
pointment of iho young son of Senato- Hale
of Maine to be Secretary of the Embassy at
Itome has already beon decided upon. Al
though Senator Hale's colleagues naturally
hesltato to express publicly their disapproval
of such an appnlntmont they do not conceal
In private conversation their opinions as to
Its absolnte unfitness.
The young man Is S3 veers old. and just
out of college. lie speaks neither French nor
Itnllau. has had no experience In public affairs
whatever, and possesses no special qualifica
tions for such un Important dluloraatlo DosU
His appointment, it is said, has been deter
mined upon at the request of Senators Hale
and Allison. Senators and Reurescntatlves,
whether displeased at young Mr. Hale's se
lection or lndlffjr-nt to It, are inclined to think
that it would have bosn much more In liar
mony .with theTHtness of things had he -boen
sent to Madrid, where, owing to his father's
warm friendship for Spain and his cbamplon-
hip in Congress cf Its Cuban pollov he would
have boen persona grata.
Tho bitch that has occurred over the appoint
ment of Gen. Draper of Massachueetta may
have had some bearing upon the determination
of '.bo President and Secretary Sherman to
send Mr. Hale to Rome. That there Is some
serious troublo in locating Gen. Draper is cer
tain. Ho was first slated for the German Am
bassadorship; tben It was said that circum
stances mode It necessary that he should go to
Italr. Finally he got an offer of the post nf
Consul-General to Cuba to succeed Gen. Fltz
hugh Lee, which he somewhat testily declined.
It is said that for climatic reasons Gen. Dra
per prefers not to go to Italy, but as he has been
told that tbe German mission Is out of bis
reach he mar finally decido to accent tbo Ital
ian AmbassadorsiilD, nnd thus be able to avail
himself of the valuable diplomatic knowledge
and experience of young Mr. Hale of Ellsworth,
Me.

Hopelessly tort to happiness Is the woman
Who neglects the health of the most im
portant and delicate organs of Iter body. If
she is weak and sick and nervous, she can
not be cheerful and nmlable ; she cannot
make her borne pleasant for herself, or for
ber husband, or for her children. Health hi
the thing most worth having in all tbe woild.
It is tbe thing that makes all other good
things good, and yet four out of five women
are sick and weak nnd make no real effort
to get well. Everyone of them can be well,
If she wants to. Women go on for year
suffering in silence, and then some'day they
find out about Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre
scriptionand they take it and get well. It
is a positive specific for all weakness and
disease of the female organs. Thousands
of women have testified to this fact. Among
them Mrs. Maud Pcarce, of Stoutsville,
Fairfield Co., Ohio, who writes :
" Please accept my thanks for the good your
medicines have done me, I truly believe that Dr.
Pierce's I'avorite Prescription saved my life. It li
a sure and certain cure for ' female troublea,' I am
having perfect health. I am stout and can do all
my housework. Nothing did me any good until J
I hearil of you, Now 1 am well at last by taking jM
your nicdUues. ,My good health pleases me and tm
fileaies my husband. He wants me to give yea
lis good wishes, livery invalid lady should take ' aH
Dr. tierce's i'avorite Prescription and 'Golden
Medical Discovery."'
Headache, heart-burn, sour stomach, foul vB
taste in the mouth, biliousness, pimples,
and palpitation of the heart are all caused I
bv constipation, and constipation is cured I
positively and permanently by Dr. Pierce's
Pleasant Pellets. They are tiny, sugar
coated granules. One ''Pellet " is a gentle
laiative, and two a mild cathartic. They
never gripe and arc perfectly natural and
tasy in their action. DruggUU sell tbest.
